Image files?

Hope I'm in the correct forum? If not, please move this to the appropriate forum, thank you.

Ok, I've tried linking to the image file on an image storeage site - won't work. Copy & pasting it into a post does not appear to be possible, not surprisingly. Done a 'Search' using every combination of words I could think of, just gets me to other people's uploaded image files. I did try to find out before posting, honest !

I would really like to just upload it from my computer, but I gather that's not possible.

So how does one insert an image file into a post, please? Many thanks!

Sorry, sorry! I just found it. Just IMVHO, it is difficult to spot. And when its only available when in reply mode. Anyway, problem solved!

There have been some issues with the attachment system and I haven't been able to exactly pinpoint where the issue lay.

That being said, smaller images seem to upload fine while weird formats or larger ones don't.

So when you add a new post or reply in full reply mode, you can add attachments.

Test ... seems to work. The image is approx 600 x 600.

Another solution is to use Photobucket(www.photobucket.com (external - login to view) ). It is an excellent site, and the best part is that it is FREE! I have used it for a number of years now, and I have never had any problems with it.

Wow! That's a gorgeous dog, Ron. Thank you all so much for your kind help on this Ron, shadowshiv and Andem. I'll try both image storage sites and see if they'll work for me.

Much appreciated!

No worries. I'll send you the name of a wonderful site full of smilies in a PM.

X2-Photobucket is the best of the bunch (none of which are perfect).

I rarely use my photobucket account anymore....it takes too long to sign-in upload a photo then link to it...
I now use ImageShack® - Online Media Hosting (external - login to view)...No login... and if your image is too big...you have the option to resize

Thank you for this. Gosh! Everyone's being so kind & helpful. Adding ImageShack to my bookmarks right now.

I think I just managed to embed my first image in a post a few minutes ago! :::fingers crossed:::

I use imageshack for quick/dirty applications it's handy but with the number of images I have/the way I like them displayed photobucket works better.

Also-if someone's connection to photobucket is slow then they should check their internet link-the Bad Old Days is long gone.

If you want real slow/clumsy/stupid check out communitywebshots-as bad as ever.
